Options

For inline math, enclose it in `\\(...\\)`

.

For displayed formulas, use `\[...\]`

.

These render differently.

Inline-mode looks like \( \sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6} \) that.

Display-mode looks like $$\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}$$ that.

## Comments

@JohnBaez said "Good users of LaTeX use something like

`\( \)`

and`\[ \]`

rather than`$ $`

and`$$ $$`

. For global search and replace, it's very useful to be able to easily tell what's a left parenthesis and what's a right parenthesis!"`@JohnBaez said "Good users of LaTeX use something like `\( \)` and `\[ \]` rather than `$ $` and `$$ $$`.
